For the 3rd year in a row, CloudForecast will donate a portion of our revenues to five 501(c)(3) non-profits for Giving Tuesday!


You can check out our past Giving Tuesdays here:


Life’s too short to only think about ourselves. Despite how challenging growing a bootstrapped startup can be, nothing is as challenging as growing up in an underserved community and not having the same opportunities as others.

We want CloudForecast’s purpose to not only be about helping our customers, but we also wish to have our purpose and values be about making an impact in our local communities with our time and money. Giving back and helping others gives us the most fulfillment as a company. 

Below are the non-profits that were hand-picked by our team and their mission statement from their website:

Techqueria is a nonprofit that serves the largest global community of Latinx professionals in tech.

Laboratoria & Parker Institute – Picked by Arturo

Together, we are transforming Latin America’s tech sector and the lives of thousands of women in the region.

Our challenge
Due to deep-rooted gender stereotypes and socio-economic barriers, women in Latin America face obstacles that affect their educational and professional experiences. This causes women to be underrepresented in the workforce, especially in the tech sector, which creates a cost for women, economies, and society as a whole.

The opportunity
The digital economy is growing in Latin America, but to advance at scale and transform our economies and the gender gap, it is in desperate need of talent, particularly female talent. Laboratoria is a growing community with the power to transform the lives of women, the tech sector, and the economies of Latin America and beyond

Our mission is to accelerate the development of breakthrough immune therapies to turn all cancers into curable diseases.

For decades, entrenched infrastructure barriers have slowed progress in the fight against cancer and the development of potent immunotherapies. The Parker Institute for Cancer Immunotherapy breaks down these barriers and focuses fully on this durable and promising treatment. The result is groundbreaking new research and an intellectual property model that builds collaboration between researchers, nonprofits and industry all working together to get treatments to patients faster.
